As dozens of companies are taken over by large conglomerates with no resources to maintain service quality, former Site5 support manager Andre Faca forms PenguinPower.eu, a 100% privately-held company based in the European Union.

As dozens of companies are taken over by large conglomerates with no resources to maintain service quality, former Site5 support manager Andre Faca forms PenguinPower.eu, a 100% privately-held company based in the European Union.

As the company opens its doors in the beautiful city-center of Lisbon, Andre Faca seems very confident on the company's direction and states that its main purpose is to balance the market while maintaining strong ethical values.

"PenguinPower was incorporated right here in the EU (Portugal). It was not incorporated in Panama or any other tax haven because not only it's highly unethical, but because it affects employees directly (they essentially become contractors) and I prefer to help my country and the union (European) rather than to look for tax sandwiches. I'm referring to the pseudo-European companies that pay ridiculously low to no taxes at all because their money is in Panama, yet their employees are hired from Delaware and they have their offices in eastern Europe. I just couldn’t do that without adding a few more sleepless nights to my calendar." - says the 32-year-old CEO when discussing the state of the web hosting industry in the EU.

When asked about Site5 however, the European CEO did not spare compliments when referring to the former pre-acquisition management team:
"It’s not their fault. We had a great management team. They made sure everyone was happy and were highly ethical human beings. Great service was always key for our success, and in reality I was just a small piece of the puzzle there. I did learn quite a bit from them and I'll make sure I apply that knowledge to PenguinPower. "

PenguinPower.eu recently launched a video ad that has gathered thousands of views on social networks and is currently working on ensuring that website owners are aware that viable alternatives such as PenguinPower are available.

Technology-wise, the company partnered with Amazon Web Services for its network and claims to be 100% cloud based. In addition, they've created various fail-safe virtual environments using CloudLinux - the leading linux distribution for Shared Website Hosting services.

As for the user interface (also known as the control panel), the company has naturally chosen cPanel in combination with various premium addons such as Search Engine Optimization tools by Attracta and the popular Softaculous Auto-Installer in order to ensure that everyone can install the software they need in just a few clicks of a mouse.
Among the hundreds of applications available for auto-installation are the popular content management systems WordPress, Drupal and Joomla.

PenguinPower’s hosting plans start at a very affordable price of 4.95EUR per month (with VAT included).
Companies and individuals that qualify for VAT exemption (non EU-residents and valid VAT companies in the European Union) end up paying 23% less, which lowers the price further on to 4.02EUR per month.
